Plugin Privacy Policy

Data Collection and Storage

At Smash Balloon, your privacy is very important to us. As our plugins are installed and hosted on your own WordPress website, then we do not collect or store any of your Facebook platform data. We do not collect or store any of your Facebook login information, Access Tokens, or content. All data required to use the plugin is stored within your own website’s database. Your Facebook login information is not stored in your database by our plugin as the authorization process is done through the Facebook login on Your Facebook Access Token is stored in your local WordPress database for use in retrieving your content from Facebook’s API. The raw JSON data from Facebook’s API is also temporarily stored, which is then displayed as HTML when your web page is loaded. The plugin does not collect any data from the visitors to your website.

Reading of Data

The plugin is built to be “read only” and so is not able to publish any data to, or edit any data on, the Facebook platform. The plugin can only display your Facebook content and is not able to publish to Facebook or access your Facebook account in any way other than as “read only”. It does not allow you to like or comment on content, edit or delete posts, or perform any of the other actions that the Facebook platform allows.

Removal of Stored Data

When the plugin is removed from your website, any saved data is automatically deleted from your database, unless you choose to have it remain by enabling the relevant setting in the plugin.


Cookies are used to handle the connection between your browser and your Facebook account when authorizing your account. The cookies are stored locally on your computer. The plugin does not store cookies on your visitors computers.

Changes to this Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy in the future. If a change is made to this policy that we believe is material then we will update this page. By continuing to use the plugin after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

Effective: 1st January 2015
